5 Book Releases I'm Excited For This Month!

"Books are a uniquely portable magic." 

I mentioned in my January Book Haul post that going forward I'm planning on buying zero books. But, before you shriek in shock at this statement, I do have a lot of books on pre-order from Amazon. So I'll still be sharing them in my Book Haul posts. But today I thought I'd share with you the five book releases I'm most excited for this year. And it was so hard to whittle this list down to five. But I managed it! Here they are...

January Book Haul!

How is it that I never really realise how many books I've bought each month until I come to edit the photos of all my recent book hauls? This month has seen me go totally berserk with book buying - from second hand, to sales, to supermarket, to brand new. I've bought a lot of books! Going forward into February, I intend to curb my spending on books by buying, gulp, zero books. I do, however, have quite a few books pre-ordered from Amazon. So I'll likely still have a monthly Book Haul going forward, where I share my pre-orders, but they will (hopefully) be a lot shorter than this one's going to be. So get comfy and enjoy a little look back at the books I've been buying in January.

January Sales Haul!

We all love a sale, don't we? I'm known for going a bit crazy in the January sales. Especially when it comes to Lush/Boots/Waterstones. But I'm surprised, actually, at just how restrained I was this year. That being said, I did pick up a few things in the January sales, and I'm going to share those with you now!

These postcards from Paperchase were too cute to resist. And shockingly, that was all I bought from Paperchase. I know...who even am I? I like to display a postcard on our mantelpiece throughout the year. I have a Halloween one, and a Christmas one. And I shall alternate these three with my others as the year goes on!

February Goals!

This photo has absolutely zero to do with this blog post. Lol. Can you imagine if one of my goals for this month was to stroke a tiger?! No. I just saw this photo on free stock images site Pexels and it tugged on my heartstrings. And I thought it'd look good on my blog. I wasn't wrong.

February TBR!

Well, this should be a short post. I've read exactly 0 books in January. That's right. 0. Why? Because I'm trying to work through the huge stack of magazines I seem to have accrued before I start on any books. So I don't have any reviews to share with you today. Hopefully next month!

January Favourites!

It's February! 2019 is well underway, and January actually seemed to fly by. I always dread January, as it usually seems to drag. But not this year. Maybe time really does speed up the older you get? Anyway, before I get too excited for the month ahead, here's a quick look back at a few of my favourite things from January.

Lush baths are one of my favourite things to do in the cold, winter months. I'm working my way through my huge Lush bath bomb/bubble bar collection. This one was the Calavera Bath Bomb from Lush's Community Favourites collection. It smelt amazing, looks gorgeous, and released lots of Marigold petals as it fizzed away.

Blog Tour: Mummy's Favourite by Sarah Flint

Today I'm very excited to be taking part in the blog tour for a thriller that is full of promise. Mummy's Favourite by Sarah Flint might still be on my TBR pile right now, but I guarantee you it is one of the first books I'll be picking up when I get chance to. I've got an exciting extract from the novel for you to enjoy right now which, hopefully, will spark your interest enough to go out and grab a copy of the book to read yourself. All information on where you can buy the book below. And once I've read the book, I'll be sharing a review. So keep an eye out on that. But for now, enjoy the extract!
